Accelerating your digitalisation projects


In December 2015, Swisscom & EPFL announced a strategic partnership to fund applied research and the creation of a digitalisation competence centre on the EPFL campus, the Swisscom Digital Lab.

Our lab is a collaborative space that brings together technologies, competences, methods and EPFL's research capabilities to fuel our customers' digital transformation. We help our customers to transform an idea into a solution in weeks with scalability and flexibility by design.

The lab's workspace and events program have been thoughtfully designed to foster collaboration and innovation.
